U2 Listening 1-1

A: The main topic of the talk about the difficulties of protecting both animals and their habitats. 对话谈论的主要话题是保护动物及其栖息地的困难。

B: Dialogue to guide the beginning of the extinction of the dusky seaside sparrow.

And the birds that lived one place-on Merritt Island in Florida have become extinct because of the people use of chemicals, and the development and use of wetlands, which have lost their habitat.

对话以导游介绍海滨灰雀的灭绝开始。而这种只生活在佛罗里达州梅利特岛的小鸟灭绝的原因,是因为人们使用化学物质,和开发利用湿地,从而他们失去了栖息地。

C: The situation with the dusky seaside sparrow makes one thing very clear. We need to protect endangered animals. However, it’s a better strategy to protect the animals and their habitats, too. After all, if an animal’s habitat is destroyed, the animal will likely become extinct.

海滨灰雀的情况让我们明白了一件事。我们需要保护濒危动物。然而,保护动物及其栖息地是一个相对好的策略。毕竟,如果动物的栖息地被破坏,动物就会灭绝。

D: That’s why the Endangered Species Act, which was passed in the United States in 1973, protects both endangered animals and their habitats. For example, the steelhead trout in Washington state.

这就是为什么在美国1973,通过在美国的濒危物种法案,保护濒危动物及其栖息地。比如说,华盛顿州虹鳟鱼。

E: In fact, that’s what makes the Endangered Species Act difficult to fully enforce. There’s an ongoing conflict between some landowners and the government. for example,Then in 1973, the gray wolves came under the protection of the Endangered Species Act, but this angered ranchers. They feel law violates their rights.

事实上,这使得濒危物种的行为难以完全执行。一些土地所有者和政府之间存在持续的冲突。例如,在1973的时候,灰狼得到濒危物种法案的保护,但这激怒了牧场主。他们觉得法律侵犯了他们的权利。

A: Right now,Unfortunately, the situation is worse than in 1973. over 1,300 species in the United States are listed as endangered or threatened. Since 1973 only 39 species removed from list, but only 14 removed because they recovered; 9 became extinct, others listed by mistake.Meanwhile 300more species may soon be added to list.So, Even with the ESA in place, not making much progress.

时至今日,很不幸,现在的情况比在1973更糟。有超过1300种被列为濒危或受威胁物种。自1973以来,只有39种从列表中删除,但只有14种被取消,因为它们的恢复;9种灭绝,被人错误列入。同时300多个物种可能很快被添加到这个列表中。所以,即使有《濒危物种法》,也没有取得太大进展。
